In a word: Awesome. We stayed the first part of our trip at another hotel, but were blown away when we walked through the door. My bedroom alone is as big as the entire other hotel's room. Nicely furnished kitchen with refrigerator, ice maker, and a private pool. Nearby the local safari (taxis) so we were able to travel the whole island inexpensively. Very clean and well run hotel right in the Amalie area where downtown shopping and the waterfront is.
Dated but clean. Nice balcony view of St. Thomas. In what is known for be a “bad neighborhood” but to be honest I felt perfectly fine and at no point did I feel unsafe. Reasonably priced for the location! It’s right in town and close to the safari/public transportation stop as well as close to tourist shops (if you’re into that). Only negative for us was the drainage/water pressure. The shower water would take hours to go down making it difficult to shower right after one another. Some mornings we barely had water coming through the pipes BUT we were informed road work was being done so the entire area’s water was cut off. So that was just an inconvenience that was not the hotels fault. Staff was kind and helpful.
This "hotel" is NOT in a safe neighborhood (we witnessed drug use right outside), staff was very rude upon check-in AND there was blood on the bed skirt of one of the beds. We stayed two hours and checked right back out. That was a week ago and I'm still waiting on my refund. I told staff about the blood on the bed and she didn't seem phased in the least. There are also MANY stairs and no elevator. Would NOT recommend this property to anyone. It's advertised horribly inaccurately.
The AC was super loud, but if you turn it off the room baked. If you opened the door the mosquitoes got you. The room was definitely clean, but the bathroom was so dated it wasn't hard to tell. The location was great though! We slept horribly for our first night. It seemed that everyone there was on a very limited budget, or maybe it was the only place they could find. Parking was really bad, but we were lucky and got one of the two spots in the hotel by a stroke of luck.
Stayed for 1 night to be close to airport and town. It is a great location but it’s a half star facility in a 4 star location with 4 star staff. Room had nice balcony, bed was worn out, should have been replaced years ago. Interior finishes extremely worn, think fraternity house give away level, peeling paint, mini fridge even has laminate peeling off of it. Took 9 hours to cool off room. Shower had no water pressure. Bathroom door couldn’t be shut. Think old motel along Route 66 that has been allowed to go into dis-repair. Restaurant has excellent views with great staff. Pool is more like the size of a large spa. And yes be prepared to haul your luggage up a lot of stairs. I would recommend great place for college kids, really can’t destroy anything, but not for any couple wanting even remotely a “nice” room. Patio door doesn’t even have an outside handle making it hard to close the door to keep your room cool and even harder to reopen.…
